"I want to commend Galati for the absolutely outstanding service that we have received!
Pete Kostuk gave us great advice and information and patiently helped us through a year long decision process. He has a very well deserved reputation for honesty and integrity in the local market and this was critical to our decision. After a few meetings with Pete we did not even bother to deal with any other salespeople! Pete is a consummate professional and we have recommended him highly to others. He is the best!
Although we had been consistently told that we would be happy with Galati we have been delighted with the care and attention during the delivery and post delivery process! Dana in Tampa and Karen in Naples made the closing simple and easy. Ken and Janis Shannon have been attentive and superb and we have a great deal of confidence that they will help us keep the boat in perfect shape. Our orientation captain Chad was excellent.
We are very happy with the boat and extremely happy that we chose Galati.
You may be interested that the Sovran has caused a fair amount of interest at Naples Yacht Club and we have been asked to show it off at an upcoming event!
Shelley and I want to thank you and all at Galati for absolutely impeccable attention and service!"

I am sitting in Naples today waiting for the Hurricane effects to clear out so that AIG will bind insurance coverage which will enable title transfer on my new 2017 Tiara 44 Coupe. It's a good time for me to compliment you for the performance of your organization.
Pete Kostuk could not have been more thoughtful, competent and professional in the sales and education process. I have purchased my two prior Tiara's used from their owners. This is my first new Tiara. Pete volunteered to take me to St. Petersburg to see the boat and arranged for a Captain from your office there to take us out on the boat. Our conversations that day and since convinced me to make the purchase. Never pressure, just enlightenment and encouragement.
The following day I took my wife up to see the boat. The staff up there were very accommodating. Everyone else that I have met with your firm has been extremely competent and professional.
The only glitch was that AIG refused to bind coverage on the boat until the storm effects have passed without damaging the boat. Here again your staff offered to "close the sale in escrow" since I am leaving town Sunday for one week and quickly amended the paperwork appropriately to accommodate my wish.
I know that high performance organizations need good people on the front lines and the back office, but I also realize that ethics, training and attitude come as a result of fine leadership, so I compliment and thank you both.

I feel that I should address you as Joe given all of the great things that Pete Kostuk has said about you and your fine company. I am writing this letter to commend Pete for his hustle and persistence during our “romance” period and ultimately the purchase of a Tiara 44’ Coupe. My wife, Susan, and I met Pete at the Miami Boat Show and had no intent on purchasing a Tiara at that time. Pete walked us through all of the Tiara offerings and made an impression upon us regarding his knowledge of the Tiara brand and the service focus of Galati Yachts. After the show we did a good amount of shopping alternative brands. Pete continued his follow up with us during this educational period. Once we decided that Tiara was the right vessel for us, Pete worked with us to locate a boat that met all of our requirements. You are fortunate to have Pete on your staff. Pete is absolutely passionate about the boating lifestyle. I am sure that he will continue to be a great asset to you in the future. Both Susan and I would be please to act as a reference for both Pete and Galati Yachts.
